The genesis for Wave came as Mizuno’s engineers studied the way nature deals with impact forces. From sound waves to tidal waves, waveforms spread and dissipate energy incredibly quickly. Inspired by nature’s simple efficiency, Mizuno created the world’s first and most effective mechanical midsole - the Mizuno Wave. Unlike other shoe technologies, as your foot touches the ground, Wave actually reduces and redirects impact forces away from your foot.
Wave acts much like your car’s suspension — offering cushioning and keeping your foot centred in your shoe throughout your stride. Mizuno’s engineers have developed multiple Wave shapes, so we can gear different shoes to fit the unique strides of different runners. And Wave’s compact form keeps the shoe sleeker and lighter than competitive systems. So whether you’re jogging around the neighbourhood or blasting past the 20-mile marker, Wave always feels amazing underfoot.
The best running gear is gear that allows you to get the most out of your natural ability. It simply works with your body. When Mizuno’s engineers studied the way muscles and skin moved on the foot as you run, Mizuno realized that they could design a shoe upper that mirrored that motion so that the shoe almost feels like a second skin. That discovery was the beginning of Dynamotion Fit.
From heel strike to mid stride to toe off, Dynamotion Fit is all about creating a shoe that works with your foot through the design and materials we use to create it. As your foot twists, bends, and stretches in each step, the shoe upper moves with you. Flex Eyelets help keep your heel secure throughout your stride by allowing the upper to stretch and contract as needed. And Stretch Mesh eliminates bunching and pulling that can create discomfort and even blisters - especially at toe-off. Together, the features of Dynamotion Fit create a shoe that gets out of your way, so you can become the best runner you can be.
SmoothRide is the result of years of development designed to the most fluid, smooth, rocking-chair-like motion in every step. SmoothRide begins working the moment your foot touches the ground. Flex Grooves in the heel promote natural movement from the back of your foot to the front, initiating that rocking-chair motion.
Mizuno’s AP+ Midsole gives the shoe a bouncier feel. And Flex Grooves and Flex Controllers in the forefoot work together to smoothly continue the roll forward to give your foot a more solid platform at toe-off. It all adds up to a more fluid, enjoyable run, every time you head out.
